Google Celebrates Black History Month

By: Tyler Hayes 
With Black History Month less than 4 days ways, Google released a new campaign video ahead of the Month highlighting phenomenal African Americans who have made their mark on the international search engine.
The concept of the video is to carry attention to a portion of "the most searched" history producers and minutes that have caught the consideration of the world. It opens with "the most looked through execution" — BeyoncĂ© featuring the Coachella celebration in 2018 — and includes around 20 others in every aspect of Black culture, including expressions of the human experience and science, amusement, sports, social liberties, and the military.
The commercial was filled with nothing but black excellence. The late Prince was shown in the commercial as having the most searched guitar solo. John Legend was named the most searched EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) winner. The late Maya Angelou was named the most searched female poet. The most searched dunk belonged to none other than Michael Jordan. The most searched tennis player is Serena Williams. Lebron James was named the most searched athlete.

Not only did Google celebrate prominent African American people in the commercial, but they also celebrated black history moments as well. 
Dr. King’s “I Have A Dream” speech is the most searched for speech, the most searched star spangled banner performance belonged to none other than Whitney Houston, and the civil rights movement is Google’s most searched movement.
Google posted its commercial on its Twitter page with the following caption: “This February, we’re celebrating the Black history makers who have helped shape and influence American culture. According to @GoogleTrends, these icons, events, and movements are #TheMostSearched in the U.S.”
It aired on television during the 2020 Grammy Awards broadcast and is featured on Google’s social media platforms and its website at
